TTMIK Comic Strip: 이 옷 어때?

경은 was excited about her new dress and asked 석진 what he thought of it… and he hesitates to tell the truth. Please also see the translation below.

Dialog

경은: 석진아, 이 옷 어때?
Kyeong-eun: Seokjin, what do you think about this outfit?

석진: 음… 잘 어울려요.
Seokjin: Um… It looks good on you.

경은: 그렇지? 아까 사람들이 나 대학생 같다고 했어.
Kyeong-eun: It does, right? Earlier today, people said I looked like a college student.

석진: 그건 아닌 것 같은데…
Seokjin: I think that’s too much…

  • I think these comic strips are so awesome! I think you should collect them and make a little book/magazine and even sell them! I like them because they are truly conversational. Such a help! Thank you for thinking of yet another awesome way to help us learn Korean! Follow me on tumblr ok!

    Hi! How 이 옷 어때 is pronounced? [이오서때]?

    • At the end of a word or before a consonant, all Korean consonants are pronounced without releasing air and as a result, the sound changes. For the ㅅ sound, it turns to a ㄷ (t) sound because you are not releasing any air when finishing the word. For example, 옷 (ot) is pronounced with the “t/d” sound because your tongue is kind of trapped between your teeth when you’re finished!! It’s really hard to not release any air when saying the ㅅ sound, so the t/d sound (ㄷ) is used to ease pronunciation. There are a number of consonants that change sounds at the end of a word, so please refer to this chart: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v492/smorriskc/FinalChart.png

      So, it is pronounced like [이 오 더-때].

      감사합니다. I asked this because for example 독일 is pronounced [도길]. Last consonant ㄱ goes to next syllable. I thought here is the same.
